    Default Injuries force Brett Lee's retirement from cricket





    Australian fast bowler Brett Lee retired from international cricket on Friday, just days after he was forced to return home from England after sustaining another injury and a few months before he had pencilled in a possible exit from the game.The 35-year-old, who first announced his decision on his Twitter page, sustained a right calf strain in the fourth one day match of Australia's limited overs tour of England and was forced to return home for further examination and treatment."The last two or three nights I have thought about it a lot and I woke up this morning and thought this was the right day to do it," Lee told a media conference at Sydney Cricket Ground. "It's almost like there has been a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. I have been a bit anxious the last two days. It has been a hard few days."

    Lee had been expected to be available for the World Twenty20 tournament in Sri Lanka later this year, and he said he had held discussions with the selectors about retiring from after that, but the most recent injury had changed those plans.
    "It (retirement) was going to be post-World Cup but I woke up this morning and felt ... that the time was right," he added.
    "To play international cricket you need to be mentally and physically 100 percent and I didn't think it would be fair to the team or myself if it wasn't in that space.
    "Looking ahead at the next two months I just didn't have that desire any more. It's not a lack of commitment but you just get to that point in your life when enough's enough and the great run is at an end."
    Lee last played a Test match in 2008, but continued to play international limited overs matches for Australia and in India's lucrative Twenty20 competition. He retired from Tests in 2010.
